About Me

Yes, my address is in the US even though it looks funny. I also have a German address, please let me know if you would like to send to Germany instead. :)

Hi, I'm Kelly. I'm an American living in Germany and I homeschool my 3 kids, who are 13, 8, and 6. We use a mix of Montessori with some Charlotte Mason. We like hands on learning materials and lot of outdoor time- tree climbing, beachcombing, hiking, kayaking, etc.

I spend my free time creating in many different media. I am always in a middle of several projects and already thinking about the next one.

I am also learning Japanese and German.

Favorite Books

Harry Potter series, Outlander series, Jane Austin, Roller Girl (Tween graphic novel that everyone should read!) historical fiction in general, the manga series Fruits Basket

Favorite Television

Friends, X-Files, Gilmore Girls, Stranger Things, The Queen's Gambit, Call the Midwife.

Favorite Crafts

nature journaling, woodworking, glass beadmaking, watercolor painting, bookbinding, photography, Dotee dolls (does anyone still make these??), hand-carved stamps, bookbinding, needle felting, sewing, Postcrossing,

Likes

I also like...nature and the outdoors, forest animals, chocolate, postcards, playing cards with fun backs (single or decks), glass beads, lip balm, bookbinding supplies, handmade books, postcards, stickers, wood toys, fabric, polymer clay charms,

I like things related to water (oceans, ponds, boats, frogs, etc), food (especially tacos, cookies, chocolate, or Kawaii doodles of food), pregnancy/childbirth related things, Girl Scout stuff...

My favorite animals are rabbits, cats, chickens, owls, elephants, foxes, and frogs.

I also enjoy receiving things for my kids. They like Kawaii stationary and stickers, postcards from around the world, animal related things (especially hamsters and cats), mushroom related things, and miniature things (like dollhouse-sized trinkets).

Dislikes

Disney, dogs, coffee, artificial sweeteners, politics, generic/inspirational quotes, religious things. Quotes are completely wasted on me. I don't even read my teabags! :)

Postcards

I much prefer postcards over note cards. I love postcards with long messages and prefer that they be send naked (no envelope), because I love a good postmark and unique stamps. I'm not a fan of quotes. See my likes above for ideas :)

Tea

My favorite teas are green teas with fruit. I'll take any teas though, as between the 5 members of my family, someone will like just about anything.

Comment: Hard to believe, but this is the first card sent from an APO that I've ever noticed. Took me a while to figure out the Germany address, but the US postage! I hope that you're mud has frozen. I don't think I'd enjoy cold wet mud in winter!

Comment: As much as I love Lego, I agree that this card is on the boring side. Hope you have had a good start to 2022.

Comment: Woo Hoo, so glad this finally arrived. I'm going to be honest, I'm a little behind on my letter writing, so I may not be able to reply right away, but I promise I will soon!

Comment: Thank you for the nice variety of cards. I don't have any of them. And thank you for all the wonderful stamps. Are the Frohes Fest, the deer, Weihnachts Post and Squirrels...postage stamps from Germany???? Thanks for sharing. Happy New Year. bearnbabs
Response: Those are actually a strip of washi tape that look like stamps :) I live in Germany but have access to a US post office on a US military base, so I used US stamps.

Hi Kelly - Received my postcard from the Send My Postcard Back swap. Glad you enjoyed my mermaid story. I think your hurricane preparation story tops mine! Such an enjoyable swap- thanks for participating in it with me.

I got my cat toys today! And my kitties must really love them! I put them on the table (still in the baggy), went out for a bit, and when I got back. . . They were gone! Took me a long time to find them again!

Thank you!
